Innocent dissemination

Seeks to protect individuals or organisations such as printers or distributors who may be caught up in an action in tort for defamation.

 

This operates by way of a defence to an action in tort for defamation. In particular it seeks to protect individuals or organisations such as printers or distributors who may be caught up in the dispute.

 

The protection applies if they can show that:

  • they did not have any knowledge of the defamation;

  • there was no reason why they should be aware of the defamation;

  • their lack of knowledge of the defamation did not arise as a result of their negligence.
